When you think about it, the fact that each of us encounters any other specific person is incredible, given the number of people who have ever lived on earth. The fact that each of us is exists at the same time is a wonder.
This assumes reincarnation doesn’t exist and each soul is unique to its human body. This also assumes that existence isn’t entirely random. The human encounter is only a marvel if you believe in free will. These are assumptions I neither refute nor accept, which is code for to be discussed in another post.
